Chapter 775 – That’s not i

The duo had moved to settle themselves onto the couch in the living room as soon as they stepped out of the bedroom. Alicia had somehow survived another challenging situation where she had to live through a naked Ezekiel getting dressed. Now settled onto the couch, they both sat in silence.

A while ago, Alicia had wanted to keep making him talk but he was quick to interrupt her upcoming questions by moving around until they had ended up on this couch. He even immediately shut his eyes and leaned his head back as though going through all that hullabaloo this morning had tired him out to the extreme.

Alicia creased her brows as she watched his resting face. Ezekiel? Tired? No way in h.e.l.l! He could be the devil himself! He might just be putting on an act like this, only to keep her from asking more questions. She had to remind herself not to forget what a good actor this man actually was!

For a long while, Alicia managed to stay silent. She was only able to hold herself back all because of her embarra.s.sing situation right now. Once the clothes arrived when Lucas gets back, and she is finally properly dressed, she would make him talk again. Just wait. She would annoy him if that was what it takes for her to get to the bottom of things!

This man was really hiding a lot of secrets that she badly wanted to uncover. And then there was the thing that he said he needed from her. What was it? Up till now, he still had not said nor even hinted to anything related to it. She was dying to know what it was and the only way to find out was by making him keep talking. And that would be no mean feat! He had told her quite a few bits of information already. Perhaps, he would let slip some other more important bits or maybe he would give in if she perseveres. What she had gotten was really a miracle in itself! Because in her mind, squeezing information out from Ezekiel would be almost like squeezing drops of water from dried ground. It was almost impossible.

Besides, what else were they going to do but talk? They literally could not do anything else right now but that since she did not even need to eat. Neither did he.

But just as she was planning to brainstorm about the questions she needed to ask, Alicia’s emotions suddenly stirred without reason again. She had tried not to think about this because somehow, she felt like it would only get worse if she pays more attention to it.

A tinge of panic quickly turned her heartbeat into a wild gallop. Worried that she would do that again and try to utter the spell, she forced herself to say something. Anything. Anything except the spell.

“Ezekiel.” She called out his name, wanting him to open his eyes. He did not reply nor move. What? Could it be that he is really asleep?! “Ezekiel!” her voice came out a little louder this time and thankfully, he made a sound.

“Hm…?” it was a low, questioning hum. He did not even open his eyes.

Alicia could not help but shake her head when she realised that he was really dozing off. What was going on? They had just woken up and Ezekiel’s already dozing off? This was just too unbelievable because… because this was Ezekiel!

“You… you’re not acting again right now, are you? You’re not feigning this just so you can avoid my questions, right?” she probed, narrowing her eyes at his sleeping form.

He drew a soft sigh and answered her without opening his eyes. “I don’t even have the energy to do such a silly thing right now, Alicia.”

“Wait, you’re hungry!” she looked like realization finally dawned to her. She had not seen him drink any blood since they had continuously held on to each other in order for her to maintain her physical form.

“No, I’m not.” His voice was soft as he negated her statement.

“Yes, you are. And that’s why you look really tired right now. You’re out of fuel.” Alicia kept on insisting. Or else why would he be so tired?

Rising from the couch, Alicia began to pull on him to get moving so they could go to the kitchen where his supply of blood was stored. But he was like an immovable stone and with her current strength – which was comparable to a kitten – she could not even move him an inch.

“I told you I’m not –”

“Why the h.e.l.l are you being stubborn now? You –” Alicia flared up at him.

In one swift move, Ezekiel pulled on her and made her to fall back into his lap. “You’re the stubborn one here, Alicia.” His whisper was firm as he wrapped his arm around her waist as if to tuck her securely against him. It looks as though he was insistent on wanting her not to move around.

Alicia who was still unable to recover from his initial move in pulling her, was shocked again. “W-what are you doing –”

“I need you to be quiet Alicia, or I will seal that mouth of yours with mine.” He warned. Though his voice was still as soft as earlier, she knew he was not making a joke! “I’m not hungry… just tired… so just let me rest for a little while and I’ll be fine soon.” His voice went weaker and d.a.m.ned lazy at the end, as if he was going to doze off again.

She speechlessly shook her head. “Tired…? You just freaking woke up Ezekiel. What could have tired you up to –”

“You! d.a.m.n… It’s you.” he said that with a groan, making her freeze in his hold and widened her eyes at another realization that dawned upon her.

“I’m… the power you’re using to keep me from disappearing is… is that what is making you–” Alicia guessed.

“No,” he cut her off, finally opening his eyes and met her gaze straight on. “That’s not it.”

“Then what?”

“Talking. It’s talking that has tired me out to this extent.”

Alicia: “. . .”

What?! This man could not be serious about that!!!

“You’re lying!” Alicia tried to call his bluff.

Chapter 770 – The type

Little Flower bookstore, at dawn.

Iryz’s eyes flew wide open. She had just awakened from a dream, she was sure of that. But as soon as her eyes opened, she could not remember what she had just dreamt about.

Slowly, she pulled herself up into a sitting position and tried to recall what the dream was about. For some unknown reason, she felt as though the dream was related to something important. She had a feeling it had something to do with the book that they were desperately searching for.

She tried and tried but to no avail. Any memory from that dream seemed to have vanished into thin air the moment she had regained consciousness. It was as if the dream was actually non-existent.

Burying her face into her palms, Iryz sighed out in frustration. When she lifted her gaze, she looked at the beautiful man who was sleeping there at his usual spot in the corner of her bedroom, on the floor. She had always wondered if he was truly comfortable sleeping in that sitting position. He had told her many times that he was totally fine with it and not to bother with him. But Iryz still could not stand seeing him like that. He might claim that he was alright, but she felt that it was uncomfortable just looking at him that way.

Carefully and silently, Iryz climbed off her bed. She looked at the clock and saw that it was almost five thirty in the morning.

As quietly as she could, Iryz grabbed her jacket and was about to grab the door handle when Zeres’ voice echoed out behind her.

“Where are you going?”

She instantly froze. Then she quickly turned around to look at him.

“Go… get groceries.” She answered.

“You can’t go out.” he replied immediately, disallowing her to leave the place. Though Iryz was distracted by how pleasantly deep his voice was after waking up, his words still made her frown in displeasure.

“Why?” She was not used to having anyone else telling her whether she could come or go. And here was a somewhat stranger telling her that she should not go out.

“That will take up a lot of time. Time that we do not have to waste.”

“I won’t take long, I promise.” She said as she put up three fingers, showing a scout’s honour.

“I will have my men go get the groceries you want instead.” He did not tell her no outrightly. However, his words told her just as much. And she frowned at how he intended to not allow her to go out.

He said those while cracking his neck and stretching his arms from that position he was sleeping in. Then he grabbed at another book again.

Iryz just stood there, looking at him in disbelief. “I want to go. By myself.” She insisted this time, her voice clipped. She had been obedient to him all these while because she understood his desperation. But it was really getting a little bit too tedious. She had been trying her best to just listen to him, trying her best to understand his actions but… he never once tried to understand her nor try to see things from her perspective.

He paused but it was only just for a moment. He continued flipping the pages as he replied, “Spend that time looking for the book instead.” His command made her purse her lips.

“Could you at least look at me when you are talking to me?” Her statement came out louder than she had intended it to.

When he lifted his gaze and their eyes met, Iryz tightened her hold on her jacket.

Whatever he saw in her expression made his cold gaze mellow down a little.

She looked away. “I know I don’t look like some deity like you. And you might think I am not good looking enough for you to look at and I also know how busy you are but… you’re being a little too much.” She started her rant strong, but her voice weakened as she neared the end. “I want… No. I need to go out and have a breather. I’ve been cooped up and confined in here for days. I know I made a bargain with you. But…” she breathed out heavily, “but I am just human! I need to go out and get some fresh air and see some greeneries.” She ended her complaints and gritted her teeth.

Iryz then whipped around and left without looking at him or waiting for his permission. She was a little mad. No… more than a little mad, actually. She could not help it.

She ran out of the bookstore as fast as she could. The sun was already rising, and many people were already out having their morning walks or jogging about. Ah, it had been a while since she too, came out this early. She tried not to think about that beautiful witch that must be in Zeres’ mind and jogged her way to the grocery store, knowing that once she returned to the bookshop, everything will be fine again.

However, before she could reach the store, someone caught up with her. It was Zeres. He had worn a hoodie that covered up his unusual but beautiful silver hair – the simplest way to avoid unnecessary and unwanted attention.

Iryz halted and faced him. She had not expected him to come running after her and it seemed that he was not there to drag her back.

“Why did you come?” she asked him curiously, her anger already vented and long forgotten.

“I need to make sure no one will kidnap you.”

“What?! Who will kidnap me?” Iryz was confused now.

He shrugged his broad shoulders. “Just a little precaution. You’re the type that bad guys like to kidnap.”

Iryz narrowed her eyes at him as she wrinkled her cute little nose. “You’re just here to make sure I’m not going to run away, aren’t you?” She asked him suspiciously and Zeres blinked at her and turned to look away, pretending as if he did not hear what she had said.

“We’re almost there,” he said, changing the subject smoothly.

“Look here, sir.” Iryz sighed, blocking his way, arms akimbo. “I’m not going to run away. There is no way that I’m going to leave that beloved house of mine, that I can a.s.sure you. So, you don’t need to chase after me like this and keep watch on me. And it’s not like I could even outrun a person like you.”

She sighed exasperatedly and continued walking towards the grocery while Zeres followed silently behind her.

Back in Ezekiel’s house…

Alicia’s eyes slowly opened. It was already morning, and the sun was streaming in. Wait… what is…

Her still slightly sleepy eyes flew open wider at the impossible sight that filled her eyes. Ezekiel… he was lying next to her and she… she was hugging him?!

Chapter 771 – Chance

For a long moment, Alicia was paralyzed. What had happened?! How could she have ended up in such a situation? Why does the whole scenario just look so very wrong here?!! A scream that was bubbling in her throat and almost got out was hurriedly suppressed by her just in the nick of time. She felt as though she was a thief that had been caught in the act. Her arm was not just wound possessively around Ezekiel’s waist. Her leg was also hooked over his! Oh heavens… just what on earth had she done?!

She felt a rush of heat flooding her face. Then her heartbeat went into a chaotic mess when she finally realised that Ezekiel was not only sleeping next to her… but he was also naked!

Feeling a huge lump in her throat that could not be swallowed, Alicia struggled for calmness. There was one thing she must do right now, first and foremost. And that was to move herself away from him before he wakes up and finds her in this embarra.s.sing position. But to her dilemma, his heavy arm was slung over her body, trapping her under that significant weight that she could not easily shrug off. This man would definitely wake up once she made a move!

Nibbling the inside of her lips, Alicia decided to give up trying to get away for now and at least just try to remove her leg that was on top of him.

She lifted her leg as slowly and carefully as she could. It was an unnerving moment but somehow, she managed to remove her leg without waking him up. But was he truly asleep though? She had learned her lesson after finding out the truth, weeks of following after him – how he had pretended not to be able to see her when he could the entire time.

Knowing this man, he could already be awake by now and was just secretly laughing to himself at what she was going through. And she would not put him past doing this, as he was fully capable of doing so.

Alicia looked up at him, already expecting that she was right. But to her surprise, Ezekiel seemed to still be asleep. Carefully, she lifted her head to have a better look at his face.

He looked… peaceful. As if he was truly asleep. Alicia squinted and stared harder at that gorgeously perfect face with suspicion, reminding herself to focus and not get distracted by all that manly beauty.

In the past weeks that she had watched over him, Alicia did not remember his sleeping face looking like this. He always looked alert even in his sleep. But right now… it was surprising to see that he was looking somehow different. She would have doubted it if she were not looking at it herself – that Ezekiel, the living statue, could even look peaceful and vulnerable.

That thought made her blink. Then she quickly shook her head internally. Ezekiel? Vulnerable? That did not sound right at all! She had never put Ezekiel and vulnerable in a single sentence because that was just simply out of the question! The world would have to end first before those words could be strung together. However, it seemed that the impossible became possible… somehow. She made a mental shrug and was about to huff when…

Suddenly, memories from last night flashed in her mind and her already red face turned even redder. Even the tips of her ears turned red, as through blood would drip out of them any moment now. Their intimate moments came cras.h.i.+ng into her mind first and Alicia did not know how to even react after recalling it all. All she wanted to do was to wail and then followed by burying her face into her palms and wished that she was anywhere else but here. But… unfortunately for her, she could not even do that.

Then all too soon, the unpleasant moments came to her. Her hatred and spiteful accusations and his icy silence and oh so cryptic and hurtful words. All of which caused her to cringe even as each memory came back to her – one after another.

And something seemed to rise within her. Again, that strong wave of hatred. It seemed to be gus.h.i.+ng out from nowhere again and this time, it was blooming fast and wide within her chest. It was so fast and sudden that she almost could not catch her breath at the change it brought in her.

Then a thought just appeared in her mind. That this was her perfect chance. Her chance to kill Ezekiel. All she had to do was utter the spell now.

But in the next moment, Alicia’s eyes widened in utter shock at her own vicious thoughts.

She felt like non-existent whispers were urging her, pus.h.i.+ng her to grab at this wonderful opportunity that had been presented to her and quickly utter the spell now to end him – once and for all!

Her heartbeat raced wilder as her head throbbed a little with a flash of acute pain. Then there it was, the hatred which began to burn within her, spreading fast and wide like a roaring wildfire as though someone had poured fuel on it. Right now, even she could tell that this does not seem to make much sense. What she was feeling was a little bit too much. And to think that this emotion was rising so uncontrollably for no reason at all.

Last night, even though she had already noticed that something was a little off, she had not doubted her hatred and anger towards him not only because of the things he did in the past but also because he was really making her lose her control because of his silence and secrets. But right now, he was literally sleeping and yet… she was still having this sort of feeling towards him? And without any provocations at all, too.

Before her mind could even ponder more on that, she felt her lips opening on its own accord.

Her eyes circled wide. She was going to utter it… the spell. It was going to spill out of her lips!

A part of her had suddenly wished that he would open his eyes. But when she wished that he did, that is when that he did not. OHis face remained peaceful as if he was in a deep, peaceful slumber.

Her lips trembled. Then the first few words of the chant fell from her lips in a faint voice. And she could not stop it anymore.

Chapter 765 – No poin

Alicia instinctively clutched onto her dress the moment she felt it loosen up. But she quickly regained her composure at the thought of the words he had said just a moment ago – those words that irked her.

She wanted to just let her dress slide down since it was loose enough to do so. But mortification came rus.h.i.+ng at her before she could do so. Biting on her lower lip, she looked over her shoulder to check on how Ezekiel was behaving.

His expression was annoyingly neutral. Or was he returning back to his usual statue self again?

The urge to get back at him by undressing shamelessly before him suddenly surged within her. She hated that she seemed to be the only one who kept being rendered speechless by him. But then again, what if… what if she really was unattractive to him and she would not even get to evoke a reaction on his face even if she stood before him completely naked? Would she be able to handle that blow to her ego?

Her face burned red before she whipped around again. She decided that she would not be able to handle the embarra.s.sment if that ever happens! It was not just because she had no confidence about herself. She knew what she got… it was just that this man was Ezekiel. Not only because of his ridiculous perfection, he had lived for so long as well. He must have built up such a tolerance to many things and would be able to keep his expression deadpan no matter what the view was before him.

“Shut your eyes.” She demanded, changing her mind. Since she was not planning to deliberately undress herself to draw out any form of reaction from Ezekiel, she might as well get him to look away instead. No point of her playing with fire. There was no way she would do something so stupid that might end up back firing on her and burning her instead.

Thankfully, he abided with her demands without a word. An awkward silence followed after that as Alicia undressed, using the only one available hand that she had.

Once she placed her dress on a nearby chair, she spoke. Glancing up at him for a moment. She did not dare look lower than his chest as she knew that this shameless man was completely naked.

“Now let’s get this done quickly.” She walked towards the bathroom, dragging him behind her. She really hoped that he would keep his eye to himself.

Ezekiel just let her drag him. But when he looked at her as he followed behind her and saw how she was wearing only her under garments, a slight smirk curved on his face. He did not say anything though.

“Alright, let’s do it this way,” Alicia touched him and made him face the shower. “We’ll stand here facing the opposite direction. You are not allowed to turn and so am I, are we clear?” Alicia rattled off her plans on how they should go about taking their shower.

He let out a soundless laugh listening to her spelling it out to him one by one and shut his eyes for a brief moment, looking as though he wanted to argue. But at the same time, he did not want to talk. He chose the latter in the end. That was much easier.

Soon, the shower was finally on. The pitter patter of the water falling filled the silence inside the bathroom. Ezekiel lifted his face a little, his free hand moved to his hair, combing his hair back as the water fell all over him.

And since Alicia did not allow him to turn around, he could not see the fact that his tall figure had actually covered her, not allowing enough water to even drench her.

“This won’t do. You’re too tall. You’re blocking almost all of the water,” Alicia complained, “We should do this the other way around.”

Without waiting for his response, she nudged him to move. Ezekiel once again silently followed her instructions. However, this time he was half biting his lower lips.

“Oh, this is much better!” She mumbled, her voice sounding happier.

And before she knew it, she relaxed. Maybe because the water drenching her made her feel a little ecstatic. She thought she was never going to experience this mundane thing ever again. But here she was, in flesh and bathing in a hot shower.

As she was enjoying the feel of the water falling and flowing all over her, she felt Ezekiel moved. She saw him from the sides of her eyes, reaching out for the shampoo.

The smell of refres.h.i.+ng mint shampoo then filled the bathroom. Still, Ezekiel did not say a single a word.

Alicia stretched her free hand towards him, tilting her body a little.

He glanced at her palm and did not wait for her to speak anymore, knowing what it was that she wanted. He grabbed the bottle of shampoo and poured an ample amount onto her palm knowing that she needed more for her long hair.

She immediately brought her palm to her hair but because her hair was pretty thick and long, she stretched out her hand again, asking for more. Ezekiel once again moved quietly and gave her more shampoo.

A while later, Alicia found herself biting on her lower lip to stop herself from smiling. Somehow, she found their situation getting a little funnier. And she was not sure why she was feeling this way. She had honestly thought that this was going to be b.l.o.o.d.y awkward. And she found that shampooing using only one hand was not that uncomfortable as she initially thought.

“Ugh!” a small groaned echoed. The shampoo had gotten to her eyes, so she reached out to turn the shower on. But his hand reached it first, her hand landed on his. She instantly felt his body against her back and that very suggestive feel of his wet skin on hers jolted her relaxed nerves, turning them all stiff again.

Chapter 774 – Never fully

A long and heavy sigh that was so unlike Ezekiel filled the silence as soon as the door was slammed shut after Alex’s departure.

Then he slowly faced her. His expression neutral, as if he had not just talked to Alexander completely in the nude and that he was not naked even now. It was as though, him being naked before her was nothing but normal.

“You should… really go get dressed first.” She finally managed to tell him, though it came out a little more choked than she would have liked. They were both adults and powerful ones at that – well, it was in the past tense for her, but what the! – so why were her reactions so different from his?! She almost felt a feeling of unfairness thinking about it. But getting back to the point, it was really getting harder to keep her gaze straight and trained on his face than to allow her eyes to roam and wander around to areas lower than his chest.

He did not say anything more, but instead of quietly heading back to his walk-in closet where his clothes are, he turned back to the door and opened it again. Alicia was confused seeing him doing that. Did he really not mind that other people would see him in his birthday suit? Was he not a very private person? Why does he not seem that way right now?

“Lucas!” he called out.

“Yes, Your… umm… I mean, boss!” Lucas’ voice echoed.

“Go bring me some clothes.”

“Clothes…? For a woman?”

Ezekiel threw a gaze that said ‘isn’t that obvious?’ “Yes Lucas. And do make haste.”

“Uhm, boss. What is her size again? Height… weight?”

He stilled and glanced back at Alicia. “Five… six?” he looked as though he was calculating something complicated in his mind while Alicia could only blink at him. He opened his mouth but seemed unsure. “Slim.” He eventually said then hurriedly dismissed Lucas.

Just before the door could be closed, he opened it again. “Lucas.”

“Yes?” the big man whirled around and was back before him in an instant.

There was a moment of pause. “Don’t forget the undergarments.” His voice was significantly lower than earlier. However, since Alicia was in close proximity, she obviously heard his words clearly. And could not help but have a violent blush suffuse her face. Were they not talking about the undergarments for… her?!

“Oh… wait, boss.”

“Now what.”

“Umm… The size??” Lucas coughed a little.

“What…??”

“The bra size, boss. Cup size, chest size, waist size… hip size.” Lucas steadfastly rambled it out without losing his composure. Alicia, who was listening from behind the door, had to give it to Lucas for being so steady. She really did not know whether to laugh or cry listening in to this conversation between these two men.

Ezekiel’s mouth parted and he ran his fingers through his hair before another quiet sigh left his mouth.

He glanced back at Alicia and saw her red all over, completely fl.u.s.tered and embarra.s.sed. Most probably realizing that it was her they were talking about as she was not wearing any undergarments right now.

“Like if she’s 32B…” Lucas gave an example thinking that his boss was still confused but trailed off at Ezekiel’s exasperated sigh.

“I think her chest size is more than 80 centimetres, waist might be 60 and hips… close to 90.” He said all those in a hurried voice before he quickly shut the door.

He shook his head a little before finally pulling Alicia along and walked back to his closet.

“You… what happened last night when…” she asked while Ezekiel led her hand to leave it touching his neck to get dressed. Since doing it once yesterday, Alicia knew the drill and did not overreact and kept her hands touching the skin of his neck to ensure that they were connected. “Umm… I mean, when… umm… after I fainted?” Though she tried to keep calm and express herself calmly, the words somehow came out with her stuttering and stammering as though she was embarra.s.sed.

“Nothing, Alicia.” He held her gaze and answered calmly. “I simply removed your wet underwear and put you in bed. That’s all.”

Alicia did not avert her gaze from Ezekiel as he continued getting dressed, never backing down from their staring contest. Eventually, she gave in first and sighed.

“So… you’re going to attend the baby shower next week?” she changed the topic, looking away.

“There’s no way I can.”

“Why? Because you don’t want anyone to see me with you?”

He halted for a moment. “You don’t mind being seen in the flesh… tagging along with me?” he returned the question, one of his elegant brows curved up in query.

“You can reject Alexander’s invitation?” she gave him another question instead of an answer.

Ezekiel unceremoniously wrapped his hold on her wrist them moved her hand this time, to his waist.

Alicia pressed her lips a little tighter at the touch. He looked unbothered as he lifted his strong arms and slid his s.h.i.+rt over his head in one smooth move. “It’s inevitable. I can’t let anyone, even Alex, see you.”

Intrigue coloured Alicia’s eyes before she asked in a hesitant voice. “You don’t trust Alexander?”

Another pause. This time it was longer. “I do. He’s the only one I can trust. But still… never fully.”

“Why? You and Alexander are…” Alicia paused in her questioning. She was not sure if she should pry about this matter, but she could not deny she was really curious. She could not forget what he had told her, that statement of ‘no trust, no betrayal’.

“Alex is the only one I trust without question. But it’s not wise for me to fully trust him especially now that he has Abigail.”

She frowned hard and was about to speak when he continued.

“Because he’s still the type of man who can burn the world without care if something bad happens to his beloved. If a situation where Alex needed to betray me or break my trust for the sake of Abigail or his children, he’d definitely do it without question. I hope such situation will never happen but it’s not impossible. You know that anything can happen anytime.”

Chapter 776 – Never my thing

“You’re lying!” Alicia called out his bluff, looking at him like she was more than certain that what he said was a lie. “You were a doctor, a powerful leader before you faked your death. Your previous fake jobs required a lot of talking too. So don’t give me all that hogwash. Tell me. Is it because of –”

She could not finish her last line as his hand slipped behind her and cupped her head. As he pulled her head down, she had no choice but to fall forward with the weight he exerted on her. But she already knew what exactly he was going to do so she responded swiftly and moved both her hands up as well and quickly covered his mouth, causing her to end up kissing the back of her own palm.

His gaze was intense as he looked down at her. But Alicia did not let him to continue intimidating her. She pressed her lips tight together and stared back at him with a sharp gaze without removing her hands. Their faces were so close together it was almost as though they were trying to stick their foreheads to each other’s.

“You should really stop doing these kinds of nonsense, Ezekiel. Your little threats would not work on me.” She said huffily.

She felt his lips stretch beneath her palms, knowing from the movements that he had just smiled. And she had almost instinctively pulled her hands off his mouth.

But then, her eyes circled wide the next instant as he had moved his head forward and licked the centre of her palm. Her hand was already right beside his ear. She literally retracted her hands so fast it was as if something extremely hot had scalded her.

A devious smile flashed across his lips. “My little threats won’t work because you actually don’t mind me kissing you?”

“Y-you pervert!” she exclaimed, finally snapping back to reality.

She struggled to get him off her, but Ezekiel did not let her out of his grasp.

“Let go of me this instant! And stop playing word games with me! I’m not a fan of wordplays, Ezekiel! And I’m telling you again, I would rather –” She ranted on, hoping that her continuous complaints would annoy Ezekiel enough that he would let go of her in favour for some peace and quiet.

“What? You would rather die than kiss me?” He continued her statement, his eyes sparkling in challenge as he stared at her, waiting for her response.

Their eyes held each other’s for a moment too long until Alicia managed to force out a ‘yes’. And the next thing she knew, he had pinned her against the couch.

He loomed over her. His knee was between her legs as his smouldering gaze shot intensely down at hers.

Alicia had gasped as she reached out for the hem of his s.h.i.+rt that she had been wearing and pulled it down to cover herself down there. Even though his eyes never once strayed anywhere below her chin, she was still so d.a.m.ned mortified at her wardrobe situation that she bit down on her lower lip hard – enough that it left a deep indentation on those plump lips of hers.

“Did you forget that you were the one who kissed me first last night?” he reminded her. She had thought he would be looking at her with a mocking gaze and taunting smile right now but surprisingly, he did not. He was just serious as he said that.

“That’s because… you seduced me.” She hissed back at him in defence of her own actions, her anger that was cooled slightly began to boil within her veins again. “And this… it doesn’t help that this d.a.m.ned weak body is helpless against you!”

A half smile, half scoff left his mouth.

“Any woman would be helpless against your seductions, Ezekiel.” She added somewhat grudgingly as if she was just making a point about it. She let out a bitter smile. “I am not sure how long I could resist this G.o.dd.a.m.ned seduction game of yours… I might give in to you in the end. But know this Ezekiel, if you’re seducing me because you think that this will be a way for you to get what you want from me… then mark my words, you will never get anything from me but this weak and temporary body.”

Any expression on his face was erased after she spoke those words. But she felt a strong restraint suddenly oozing from him. Whatever it was that he was holding back right now, she had no idea. But it was something that garnered so physical a reaction from him that she could clearly see and feel it.

She saw him shut his eyes and let out a nearly shaky breath.

“Right… You might be right, Alicia. That no woman would be able to resist my seductions as you called it.” He nodded, but his jaws were working. “But Alicia… what if I told you that any man would be d.a.m.ned badly seduced by you just by being with you, huh? Just by them looking at you like this?!” He countered her words.

His ever so calm voice had a tinge of anger now as well. “I had to seduce you to make you want me, l.u.s.t for me but I… f*cking h.e.l.l…” he cursed out in a nearly inaudible voice. “I am holding back every f*cking second even though you’re not even doing any active seducing on me! I am a man, for G.o.d sakes, Alicia! You’re literally stuck with me every single second of the day. And now… here you are, right here with me. And there’s not a st.i.tch of undergarments on you!” Ezekiel half roared out in exasperation as he tried explaining.

He sagged against her, but he still made sure not to squeeze her with his body by using his elbows. “Listen…” he whispered as he rested his forehead right at the side of her head. “Seducing a woman to get what I want is never my thing, unless…” His whisper came out as a firm hiss. “… it’s her and her body that I badly wanted.”

Chapter 766 – Cool down

The water fell on her, jolting her out of her shock, quickly extinguis.h.i.+ng the sparks of fire ignited by their brief contact.

When Alicia moved slightly forward and started was.h.i.+ng her face in haste, he retracted his hand and backed off as well. After that, he then offered her the soap. Alicia blinked at it for a while but she eventually took it. For some reason, the tension that was ignited was not dropping.

Alicia cleared her throat, wanting to distract herself.

“Is everything good?” was the words that came out of her lips. She regretted that, wondering why she had spouted out such words of all things. Her face was so red as she tried to redeem herself. “You’re suddenly back to being the quiet Ezekiel again?”

He s.h.i.+fted a little, looking slightly upwards as he slowly ran his tongue across his teeth.

“You’re so talkative just a while ago. So it’s weird you’re suddenly so quiet again.” Alicia blabbered on nonsensically. Her nervousness caused her to just want to fill this growing silence between them with something… anything. But now that she mentioned this, curiosity suddenly hit her, and she really wanted to know.

“Talkative…” he echoed, shaking his head a little.

“You were so talkative just a while ago. So don’t you dare deny it.” she was not aware that she was facing him now, even tipping her chin up as if daring him to deny it. “You’re actually quite talkative, aren’t you?”

“No, I’m not. I just don’t have a choice but to speak as much words as I can since I touched you.” he answered her.

“And why would you even bother to do that?” she raised a brow, obviously doubtful at his claims.

“If I don’t talk, it would rile you up, wouldn’t it? Talking is not my thing… but I would choose it over you being so emotional. I can only choose the lesser of the two evils.”

What?!! Her jaw almost hit the floor listening to the way he had explained his reasoning on why he seemed so ‘talkative’ according to her description.

“Did you just referred to ‘talking’ as an evil?” Alicia was not sure to be amazed or shocked at his way of looking at it.

“I’m not that fond of it.” He spoke lowly, defending his stand.

Alicia was speechless. She could only shake her head when he spoke again.

“Are you really okay bathing with your undergarments on like that?” he asked but his gaze was holding hers, never straying to look downwards or anywhere further than her chin.

The tips of her ears heated up and suddenly, she felt like she could not move. Now she could not take her eyes off him. While she was still soapy and all bubbly, Ezekiel already looked like he was already done bathing. His wet hair… the droplets of water all over his skin… his wet lips… his…

She swallowed, hard. What had she done? Why did she turn?! When did she turn?!!

The soap slipped from her suddenly limp fingers, causing the both of them to instinctively look down. Alicia caught sight of it… of his… oh g-G.o.ds!!!

As if caught red handed, Alicia quickly spun around and looked away, her face blazing so d.a.m.ned red while Ezekiel bent over and picked up the soap rather nonchalantly.

When he lifted his hand to hand the soap back to her, Alicia suddenly walked towards the tub. “I want to soak first.” She said dragging Ezekiel along with her in haste. She immediately began to fill the tub and climbed into it before there was even enough water in it to cover her to her waist.

She never looked at him again even when she heard him drew out a small sigh as he stood right next to her. He did not move until the water had filled the tub up to Alicia’s chest.

The bathroom was deafeningly silent again, so Alicia created some noise by playing and splas.h.i.+ng around with the water and was.h.i.+ng her face, hoping that the heat on her face would cool down. She regretted this move of hers again. She should have just washed up and finished the bath! What the h.e.l.l was wrong with her? She wanted to facepalm her dumb self so hard, but Ezekiel was watching.

She fought for calm. A few moments more and she would leave the tub as naturally as possible and be done with this.

But just as she was about to rise, she halted at the sight of Ezekiel climbing into the tub. W-wait… wait a moment…

Before she could manage to speak or react, he had already lowered himself and sat across from her, folding his long legs and bracing his arms on the sides of the tub. But even though he had folded his legs, his feet still reached all the way to her side. What the… what the h.e.l.l is he doing?!!

The tub was not that small. But with him in it as well, it suddenly felt so cramped that even though the water was not even warm, she was feeling it getting hotter! Her cheeks flushed a hot pink as she looked over at him trying to get comfortable on his side.

“What are you doing? Y-you never used your tub…” she spluttered as she spoke and struggled a little to make herself confront him.

He folded his elbow and leaned his temple against his knuckles. “You’re right. But I can’t just be standing here like a statue while you’re happily soaking yourself in here, right? Might as well join you.”

She bit her lip and then abruptly, she rose, forgetting about their inseparable hands.

The pull of his hand to keep their hands from separating caused her to lose her balance in the already slippery floor of the tub.

And she fell right onto him.

Water splashed and the two of them instantly stilled as Alicia quickly realized where her free hand had landed at in her attempt of trying to balance herself when she fell.

Alicia: !!!!

Chapter 772 – Torn

Ezekiel’s eyes flew wide and immediately turned his head to look at Alicia. Only to find her biting so hard on her lower lips that he could now smell the strong and heady scent of sweet blood coming from her mouth.

With slightly widened eyes, Ezekiel rolled and hoovered over her in an instant.

“What’s going on?” he asked, his gaze searching her face. “Stop that, Alicia.”

Alicia’s face looked like she had just woken up from a horrible nightmare. Her eyes were almost a little bloodshot.

In seconds, Ezekiel’s expression changed from alert to calm. His sharp gaze quickly turned somewhat tranquil, almost a little gentle.

He lifted his hand, and his thumb swept in a gentle arc over her lips. “That’s enough, Alicia.” His voice did not come out like a command. Instead, it was low and almost slick. “Let go of your lip,” he continued while his thumb gently brushed again over her lips, coaxing her to relax and release her tight clamp on her own lips.

Alicia’s gaze seemed to clear out a little and when his face became clearer in her eyes, he nodded at her. It was a rea.s.suring nod. One that helped her heartbeat to stabilise and find calmness.

“It’s okay, Alicia. Relax and let go…” he said again. And she listened to that low and magnetic voice that echoed in her ear. Maybe it was because of the patience she had detected in his voice or that unexpected look of understanding that shone in his eyes. It was as if he knew what exactly she was going through right now.

She managed to relax her seemingly locked jaw and finally released her lower lip. There were deep teeth marks indented and it had turned numb now.

“Good girl…” he murmured encouragingly, and she immediately frowned at those words. Where did that came from? It sounded wrong in so many different ways in her ears. Was he just trying to distract her again?

But she did not have the time to linger and ponder more on it because of the second sound he made. He made a sound under his breath that sounded like a curse. Ezekiel? Cursing? Would wonders never cease today? Alicia was hard pressed to keep up.

“You’ve torn it real bad.” He said and she felt the blood overflow, surprising even herself. Had she really put in such force in her bite?

With one swift move, he pulled her up into a sitting position.

“Heal it now, Alicia. Hurry.” He urged and she could only obey his request, knowing that her blood was already affecting him. She had noticed his grey eyes turning a little red around the rims of his irises for a moment there.

After her chant, her wound closed up perfectly. Leaving no trace that it was torn and bleeding just a few seconds ago.

“What happened?” he asked and Alicia averted her gaze, not sure if she should answer. And even if she did answer, how should she phrase it?

She did not know exactly what was going on. All she knew was that something was terribly wrong with her. She could not believe what she had almost done.

Since before she had become a queen, Alicia had her own uncompromising principle. One of it was on harming someone vulnerable. Even if the person would be her most notorious enemy, she would never even consider killing them without a fair fight. And yet, she had been about to kill Ezekiel while he was asleep?! She could never do such a thing, but she had caught herself almost doing it. Not to mention that she had to bite on her own lips so d.a.m.ned hard to stop herself. Something was wrong. Something terrible was happening to her.

“Nothing, just… a nightmare.” She answered. Even if he said he could feel her emotions and he must already know that she was lying, she still could only lie. How could she bring herself to tell him that she was about to kill him in his own house? In his own bed?!

He did not speak and just nodded. His expression was blank now.

She took a deep breath of relief then lifted her hand to wipe off the blood when Ezekiel suddenly caught her wrist, stopping her hand just centimetres from touching her lips.

Their eyes met before Ezekiel’s gaze strayed to the blood on her lips and those that had trickled down to her neck. “Let me.” he said and bent over. She knew then that he was going to lick her blood. And she did not know why, but she suddenly wondered if he had found that her blood was something different. Was there some additional or unique allure to her blood that he, the prince of vampires would be so attracted to it?

But he stopped just an inch away as if something had forcefully made him halt.

She felt him take a long exhale as though taking in the scent of her blood, then the doorbell rang, breaking the silence within the bedroom.

He did not move for a few moments but when the doorbell rang again, he grabbed her hand – not her wrist – before climbing off the bed, dragging her along with him.

Before they left his bedroom, Zeke grabbed a clean towel and wiped off the blood that was staining her chin and neck.

When the doorbell rang for the third time, he discarded the towel and they rushed out of the bedroom.

Alicia could only follow after him because she felt the urgency in Zeke. Since she started watching over him, no one had dared ring his doorbell before. Much less to ring it in succession for three times! This was actually the first time. And to think that whoever was it that pressed on the doorbell could make Ezekiel hasten thus so, was such a surprise. Who could it be?

Chapter 764 – With Me

TSYM @So_mystically for the magic castle. Here’s a second chapter as my thanks for all the gifts. 

When Alicia was starting to flare up again, Ezekiel raised his hand as if to surrender, bringing Alicia’s explosion to a premature halt.

“No need to get riled up over this Alicia. Aside from the fact that we don’t have a choice, I don’t really mind undressing before you.”

She could not help but gape in disbelief. This d.a.m.n…

“But I do mind it.” She hissed back at him, her eyes shooting sparks at him.

“You can always choose not to look. I am not forcing you to watch.” He shrugged easily as though it did not bother him whatever she chose to do.

His answer made her face heat up. But she quickly managed to retort. “Then how about me?!” she exclaimed, and Ezekiel paused. “I… I am not as sh… shameless as you to… to… undress –” she stammered so badly that Ezekiel had to press his lips tight, as if to suppress his laughter before it bubbled forth.

“I can always look away, Alicia. Or close my eyes.” He answered smoothly.

“But… but how about when… when… oh G.o.ds!” she groaned, biting her lower lip again.

“If you’re referring to about us taking a bath, then the solution is the same.” His tone did not change.

“Not just that! What then if one of us need to…” she caught her lip between her teeth, unable to say what she was meaning to say.

“Ah,” he sighed as if he had understood her. “Don’t worry, none of us need to.”

“W-what?” she blurted out, feeling confused. Does he actually know what she was referring to?

“You don’t need to consume anything at all Alicia. Your body is not fully back yet, this one’s still temporary. My power is giving you the energy and everything your body needed.”

“Oh…” she was speechless once again. But that was truly a relief! “H-how about you?”

“Blood is all I needed. I am never fond of human’s food anyway.” He answered. Alicia knew he was telling the truth. Ezekiel had never consumed any human food since she started watching over him. Now that she thought about it, Ezekiel had always eaten the least among them when they were out on that journey to find the cavern to save her. “Any more questions?”

Alicia closed her eyes, sighing tiredly as she shook her head. This strange predicament she was in right now was something she had never thought would happen to happen to her in a million years! “Do what you want.” She could only say, knowing that she could not even do anything about this nor have any solution to this problem at all. She was totally dependent on him right now. And that p.i.s.sed her off to no end. But she could only hold her peace and have a truce between them for now.

“You will need to undress too and take a bath with me.” This statement came out so flippantly that she did not register it in her mind for a couple of seconds.

However, after the words left his lips for a few heartbeats, Alicia suddenly whipped her head towards him again, eyes wide.

“Easier for us. I believe you wanted a bath anyway. Right?” He spoke as though they were conversing about the weather. Alicia did not know whether she should faint or strangle him to death!

He was right, Alicia did want a bath so badly. Maybe because it was strangely hot – which she believed was because of him – and maybe because it had been so long since she had one. Ever since her death. She missed the feeling of soaking in a warm tub. But a bath with Ezekiel? Just thinking of the idea was causing a ma.s.sive headache for her now.

“You don’t have anything to worry about. As long as you don’t jump at me first, I can a.s.sure you nothing will happen.” He said confidently. The way he phrased that just irked her to no end. Was he trying to say that she was so unattractive to him that even when she stood before him naked, it was something that he could ignore completely?

Something flared within her. How dare he…

That feeling she always had against him. This feeling of not wanting to lose to him surged again within her.

“You can open your eyes now,” his voice echoed.

Slowly, her eyelids open. There were no signs of embarra.s.sment on his features at all. What a thick-skinned fellow. “Your hand,” she snapped testily, and he lifted his without delay.

Alicia grabbed it before retracting her hand that was at his nape. Then she turned, her back facing him.

“I need your help,” she said. Her tone cool and casual. She was still dressed in her white medieval dress. The same dress she had been wearing as a spirit.

The dress’ laces were tied tightly across her back and thus, she needed someone to help her untie it.

Ezekiel did not answer but before Alicia could move to gather her hair over her shoulders, he had already beat her to it.

She bit her lower lip and fought for calm as she felt his strong fingers brushed ever so slightly over her neck while he gathered her hair to the side. b.l.o.o.d.y h.e.l.l… she cursed within her mind, knowing that her heartbeat’s pace was increasing rapidly and crazily. And the worse thing was that this vampire must have been able to hear it loud and clear.

His annoying triumphant smirk flas.h.i.+ng across his face came to her mind and she took a deep breath. It seemed that it was impossible for her to act as nonchalantly as Ezekiel. And she loathed him utterly for that. How could he be so calm when she was…

“There you go again, Alicia.” His slightly rough yet refined voice echoed in her ear, and she felt the gooseb.u.mps p.r.i.c.kle down her spine.

“What?!” she groused at him. Annoyed at him but more so at herself. “Don’t you dare tell me to calm down because I won’t. I can’t. I am not like you, Ezekiel.” She griped angrily.

He did not speak any more and silence reigned.. Then her dress loosened up.

Chapter 769 – That’s right

The only sounds that could be heard inside the bathroom right now was the pitter patter of the water falling like raindrops over them, her heavy breathing and his calm and controlled ones. Ezekiel did not move nor talked. His one arm remained loosely wrapped around her waist and his hand rested on the small of her back.

Time ticked by and the heat that had driven them both into a frenzy had subsided. Alicia’s breathing had finally stabilized as well. Then dark emotions came cras.h.i.+ng into her like ma.s.sive waves.

She began to realize that if they had not stopped in time… if she had not accidentally said those words out loud and they ended up eloping…

Her eyes widened and an indescribable emotion rushed through her entire being. She could not believe that she had momentarily forgotten this fact. That she was a witch – though physically dead and currently in the flesh due to Ezekiel’s powers – and Ezekiel on the other hand, was a vampire. And that any form of relations, especially s.e.x – was forbidden between them.

If she had not accidentally stopped him with her words, would he have stopped? Or would he have continued not minded it at all even if he ended up killing her?

A cold s.h.i.+ver ran through her, and she finally lifted her gaze at him. His grey eyes were unreadable now. Emotionless. He was back to being that unfeeling statue he usually is. The only difference was that he was totally without a st.i.tch of clothing on him.

“If I had not stopped you earlier…” she started slowly, breaking the heavy silence between them, “would you have stopped?”

His gaze held hers in silence. She locked eyes with him and waited for his answer but when he did not seem to be opening his mouth even after a few moments of just staring at her, Alicia gritted her teeth and told herself to be patient and continue waiting for his answer.

“Tell me… would you have just continued on?” Alicia’s hatred bubbled forth and filled her eyes again, “Would you not have cared even if you ended up… killing me?” Her voice cracked a little as she forced the question out.

The way she phrased that last question dissolved Ezekiel’s impregnable mask and his eyes widened slightly. But the next moment, his facial muscles worked, and his face darkened as though in anger. However, she had never seen him angry before, so she was not sure if that expression was anger in the first place. Looking at how his expression was so dark, Alicia was taken aback. This was the first time that she is seeing that expression on his face.

But then, he let out a snort before his eyes turned incredibly cold. So cold and sharp she felt like they had turned into an icy weapon as he looked at her.

“You do think of me as nothing but a monster, huh…” he uttered, his voice gravelly and hard as stone. There was no more trace of that utter calmness that he had earlier. A sardonic smirk flashed across his face. “Well, of course.” He nodded before reaching out one hand and cupping her face as he moved his face a little close to hers.

“That’s right. You should think of me like that all the time, Alicia.” He sneered a little. His voice was almost a whisper now, but it still retained that steely edge to it. “That’s how you should see me.” Alicia did not know why but she felt as though his statement was tinged with a little bitterness.

He released her face and just like that, his expression immediately went back to normal. Expressionless as ever.

“If you’re done now, I’m ready to leave the bath and get changed.” He said as if nothing had just happened between them. It was as though that whole heated exchange between them was only a figment of her imagination.

Alicia gulped. Her throat somehow hurts, and she did not know what had exactly caused it. Why… why was this man like this? Why did he have to behave this way? He was just messing her already messed up mind and emotions! She did not even know if she hated him or herself at this moment anymore.

Everything was getting too overwhelming for her right now. Especially with this temporary body of hers that was so obviously emotionally and physically weak.

She wanted to yell or cry out in frustration, but the yell just somehow did not manage to be expressed because all of a sudden, her vision turned dark and she wobbled where she stood.

The last thing she heard was Ezekiel cursing and she saw a shadowy figure before her.

Zeke grabbed a robe and wrapped Alicia up in it before he carried her out of the bathroom.

His movement was swift as if Alicia was nothing but a light feather in his arms. His strides were powerful, decisive – as his face had lost its normal expressionless mask.

After grabbing a s.h.i.+rt from his closet, he sat down and proceeded to remove her wet underwear beneath her robe without even giving a thought of whether she would have much to protest later on. Then he managed to maneuver and put his white s.h.i.+rt on her while she was still in his embrace.

A long sigh escaped his lips as soon as he did up the last b.u.t.ton. This lady really was testing his limits. He rose and was about to tuck her under the bedcovers when his gaze fell on her ma.s.s of wet hair.

He stilled for a moment. In a movement that was so unlike him, he caught his lower lip between his teeth before straightening and keeping her tucked securely within his embrace. He walked back to the bathroom and grabbed the hair drier.

For a few minutes, Zeke quietly but expertly moved the hair drier about and attempted to dry Alicia’s hair. His expression was so serious the entire time as though he was settling one serious task that he could not afford to mess up. As though what he was doing right now was a task that required one hundred and one percent of his attention.
